ASPD / Psychopathy

We Need to Talk about Kevin. Best representation of callous-unemotional traits.
Nightcrawler
Gone Girl
Fargo season 1, Lorne Malvo in particular.

Those are the best I can think of.

Shawshank Redemption was really good, but I wouldn't really call it an 'AsPD movie', unless you're calling it that because of the prison setting. I don't know the others you mentioned. I've never seen them. I started watching Scarface at one point, but lost interest.

If you want to see a couple of really good prison movies, watch Felon and Shot Caller. The main character in each movie doesn't have AsPD though, but some of the other characters in it definitely do.

I would also suggest watching:

- Bronson
- Chopper
- A serbian Film
- August Underground (it's an amateur made movie, but has very dark, antisocial themes)
- Snuff 102

Another good prison movie is Death Race.

Also, the Mad Max movies have strong antisocial themes, particularly Mad Max: Fury Road. I can't remember the other ones much.

I’ve watched and read a lot about Bronson but haven’t seen the movie, Reaper, Godfather and good fellas are probably as close to Mafia during their peak in the US as far organized crime as you could get. Absolutely all time great movies, Yes Shawshank for the prison setting but also because the Warden was probably a psychopath, from using prisoners to his gain to having them shot to death to cover up exploration.

Gangster movies have ASPD elements but they're hardly ASPD centric.

A Clockwork Orange is the benchmark.

Spoorloos
Funny Games
Taxi Driver
Original Texas Chainsaw Massacre
House of 1000 Corpses

Honestly I feel like gangster movies are the benchmark for ASPD and movies like clockwork orange are interesting in their own right but loosely based in reality and I mean loosely

No country for old men is the only film I’m personally aware of that approaches a realistic depiction of a psychopath. Most of the other “psychopaths” in film would actually be variations on other personality disorders (mostly npd and ppd), undoubtedly antisocial but not psychopathically so.

Just antisocial ones that have not been mentioned off the top of my head are Ils and Man bites dog.
